  • SLAG

    Forgive the rather nasty sounding title, however this stands for super loose and agressive.
    Over the years poker as become a very stereotypical game. People seem to have forgot the fundamentals of playing poker,

    Many players opt for the plain and boring TAG aproach, this can be come very predictable type play.

    Others develop their skills and move on to a more LAG aproach, this thenis harder to read your opp.

    Others just dont learn and stay a donk.

    And others just tilt.

    Donk and tilt, what if this was put into a new style of play, SLAG.

    Completely an unreadable opponent is developed.

    Donk bet sizes,donk posistion, but an assurity that he can read the more static type opps.

    May sound mad to the hardened poker fanatic,

    We all know that standard TAG and NIT poker produces results,and is probably one of the best and must standard ways to play.

    So anyway im about to take a break for a while,but wanted to leave you with this, and help some of you to alter that static blueprint way of thinking.

      I'm glad you have finally described yourself Now to correct that: Take a few months, maybe a year and go read a few books, watch every video posted here, take part in every class, go practice in play money and then come back to real money and this forum to show us your progress. Hope to see you, but not before January next year since you'll have lots to work on GL umbup:

        Um,before you go trying to get proprietary rights for your "new style of play" it already exists and at micro levels for sure is the most prevalent style of play. Instead of SLAG though it's known by these more common terms...

        ...aggro fish...

        ...muppet...

        ...spewtard...

        ...tencat...

        ...um,YOU to be quite honest...

        ...and others I won't mention so as to avoid a warning and/or ban.


        If one were to want to play an extreme LAG type of game and had the reading ability (you don't...but feel free to keep deluding yourself...),discipline (again...totally absent in your game...),BR management (...I don't really need to go there I hope...),and a dozen other factors then they could be Gus Hansenesque and do this,sure. But Hansen has something you don't---table cred. Hell you and 99.9% of the players in this school play at levels where the vast majority of our opponents don't even recognize table images or anything beyond the 2 cards in their hand.

        As for the "static blueprint way of thinking" stuff...well I'm fairly sure I speak for most of the analyzers and more involved members of the Forum and school when I say that if you think we don't have other gears in our TAG or NIT games and the ability to use them to adapt to table dynamics then you're more than welcome to test that theory out.

          This couldn't be farther from the truth. A nitty style does well against opponents that are way too loose and largely clueless level 1 thinkers. Nit poker works fine in the smallest of microstakes where the large majority of the player pool are mostly unskilled, because they don't have the skill sets or experience to identify and take advantage of the nit, and when the nit hits a hand they give all kinds of bad EV up anyway. And by "works fine" I mean is profitable... it's still not optimal for a skilled player.

          Against more savvy competition nits have no chance, they are easily exploited. I would be willing to back a decent nit in 2nl, but wouldn't dream of it in 50nl as that would be lighting money on fire imo, unless they were also expert game selectors and only played when there were tables with at least 2 or more "SLAG's" on them.

                        blah blah blah

                        NOT forgiven - unacceptable that you think you are so clever coming up with an acronym like that and even more unforgiveable that PSO didn't instantly remove the post or change the title.

                        IMO you are massively negative ev for this forum - you create traffic - but it is like watching a car wreck.

                        If I had any power you would be gone by now.
